    Hi - I imagine this is a simple one, but I can't seem to find a thread that covers it.

    How do people connect conduit to their houses? The idea of zip tying strips to conduit seems great, but I just drilled a few conduit clips to the outside of my house and have been I formed that it looks ugly.... so how do people do this without upsetting their better halves?

    Thanks!

    Hi haydnk.
    I use ziptie mounts that are siliconed to the brickwork and the same for my roof outline to the roof tiles.
    You can see an example in the first couple of minutes up close in my behind the scenes from couple of year ago:

    The sticky backing is no good on its own, but silicone underneath has held up for 3+ years so far for me.
    Cheers, Graham

    Maybe try some brick grips? That's assuming that the surface you want to attach to is exposed brick.
